I know for a fact that alot (75% or so) of the Police and RAF sniffer and Canine response dogs in the UK come from rescue shelters, so the odds are that a few of them are mixed breeds! It doesn't say anywhere that mixed breeds are less intelligent and therefore why shouldn't the K9 units have mixed breed dogs?!
I think some of you have had a derogitary opinion of Bullboxer from the start and therefore you are thinking the worst of him/her. Bullboxer came on asking a simple question and it has all got a bit blown out of proportion!
Maybe Bullboxer should have researched the breed before getting the pup but now it's beside the point, and He/She is trying to get help now which we should applaude him/her for! This after all is a forum of dog lovers and as such we should be helping to make this pups life a good one not shouting Bullboxer down at every oppertunity! We are at real risk of failing this pup if we don't become a little more tolerant!!
I understand completely the anger and outrage people feel at dog fighting because I feel the same way intirely!! But there has been no mention of this dog being faught!!
We have to take into account that some people (including myself) find it hard to express what they really mean and it sometimes comes out wrong and gives people the total wrong impression about us!
I don't want to offend anyone but this is how I feel!
